We are moving the RBC 1 Rides to start at 5:00 pm on Thursday.s  Starting and ending at Parking lot at 750 Center St., Herndon VA 20179    

1) We will go slow (less than 18 mph on the W&OD - going out and coming back)

2) When we make turns onto roads we make sure it is safe for anyone behind us.  This is the most important rule.

3) If you can re-join RBC if your membership is up, I recently did. Reminder you get extra insurance. It only cost $25 for the year.

Here is the route:

Additional Rules

1.  Normal safety items -- you MUST have a red taillight. It is a good idea to have a white light on the front of your bike (angled down on slow pulse), but not required.

2. We do not allow TT bikes, Tri bikes or aero bars on a road bike. These are not allowed (no exceptions) in most UCI sponsored road races and are not allowed on RBC rides because of the dangers they pose to the rider and to others in the peloton. There are many reasons for this rule.  Aerobars are unstable in tight formations and when turning - and we have lots of both on our rides. They don't allow for quick decisions which are often needed to maintain a safe and fun ride for all in a tight group.  And, they present a spearing hazard in a crash.  

3.  We do not allow earbuds.   It is very important to be listening for safety call outs on our rides.  Also, our rides are intended to be social when we are not hammering and it is hard to talk to the person next to you when you or they have something stuck in your/their ear.  

4. Snot Rockets.  When you have to clear your nose be sure to move to the back of the peloton before you do.

We are paper-free, which means you can download the route from Ride with GPS and print it before you come, but we will not have paper cue sheets to distribute at the ride

All riders must sign (or have already signed for 2021) a liability waiver. You can do that HERE. The first ride with us is free. We welcome you to join us on subsequent rides as a member. Membership is $25 per year and you can take care of that HERE.
